Semi permanent makeup is ideal for anyone who wants to enhance the look of their eyebrows, eyes or lips.The results can vary on the client preferences, skin type, facial features, lifestyle, etc. Our brow artist is very talented and will create the most natural looking hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. This technique is called microblading (manually with a pen like tool) or nano brows (using the tattoo machine). Powder brows and ombre brows are another longer lasting option. It can last anywhere from 1 to 5 years. It is done by creating a make-up powder look and will define your brows more then the hair strokes technique. There are many different looks we can create with a powder brow from dark and bold to soft and subtle. Eyeliners will last 2 to 5 years. We can do a very natural eyelash enhancement by colouring in between the lashes to create the appearance of thicker lashes to a full winged liner look. Thickness, colour and type of eye liner will be chosen by the client.
All permanent makeup procedures will need to be touched up eventually. We recommend between 2-5 years. The pigments we use have been formulated to match your original eyebrow colour, and if the eyebrows are still present, to blend perfectly. A good quality numbing cream is used to keep you comfortable.
The initial procedure takes approximately two hours. We start by numbing the area, then we discuss your expectations (shape, colour and style you would like) and after care. Remember our faces are NOT symmetrical, one side is always a little different than the other, our Brow Artist will always aim to create as much symmetry as possible. Many factors can affect your results, like your skin type, lifestyle and how well you follow the after care instructions. Perfect brows can not happen with only one session! The second visit is essential to correct any irregularity and give you the perfect brows or eyeliner you deserve. This visit will last approximately 1 hour and is done 6 week after. It takes that long for the pigment to settle in the skin. However, your skin will be healed after 2 weeks. It is IMPERATIVE you complete the second visit, as without it, the job will be half done and the results will not be optimal. Occasionally, a third visit might necessary for certain clients.
The second stage of the treatment is called a ‘touch up’, and takes 40 min approx. This usually happens after 30-60 days because it takes that long for the pigment to settle in the skin. It is IMPERATIVE you complete the touch-up treatment, as without it the job will be half done and the results will not be optimum. The touch-up gives the client an opportunity to get used to the initial finish before a final touch up consolidates the pigment into the skin, thus preventing fading. Colour will have faded significantly in these 30 days as the skin heals, peels and fades. The look of the brows in the first 10 days will be very defined, with no indication of the finished result.
Occasionally, a third visit is necessary for certain clients, 30 days later again. This is not uncommon.
Eyebrow shapes that do not suit a client’s face or facial structure, colour that does not suit the tones of the client’s face will not be considered despite client pressure.
